How can we understand the twentieth century? In
particular, how can we understand the radically new
social and political forms that marked history between
1914 and the 1990s? Whereas light has been shed on
earlier eras, this period remains difficult to understand.
Denis Guénoun will offer a conceptual model for
interpreting the twentieth century, demonstrating
that this history is at the heart of our present.
